Books & Articles: Islam: A General Introduction by Shaikh Ali Al Tantawi
He advocated resistance to imperialism in all possible ways. It was only natural that such commitment to the cause alli the Muslim people should bring him into the political life in his hometown.
Sheikh Ali Al-Tantawi contested the elections to the first post-independence Syrian parliament in Despite his strong appeal, he did not win a seat. It was so because his courage, his determined stand for the people, his Islamic outlook and his utter refusal to tantaiw on matters of principle made him a sli character to deal with in political matters.
That was the only time he stood for parliamentary elections, but he was always concerned with political developments. He spoke out on any issue that was of importance to the people, or that touched on Islamic principles. Whenever free elections were held, he spoke out in favor of returning an Islamically oriented parliament.
That made him a target for attack by all three parties and their papers, but he stood up to all their concerted attacks with tnatawi courage of a firm believer.
His courage in matters encroaching on Islamic values and principles was phenomenal.
He would not hesitate to criticize in the clearest of terms any action that was in conflict with Islamic values. In the early s, a girls school organized a dance which was attended by the then Prime Minister, Khalid Al-Azm, who was ruling under the patronage of Adeeb Al-Shishakli, the army general alii wielded real power. That party was to crown the efforts of the school to revive folklore dancing. That same week Al-Tantawi delivered the khutbah i.
Friday sermonwhich was broadcast by the Syrian radio. He launched a scathing attack on the organizers of the party zli those in government who nooks them their support, describing the latter as morally corrupt. As it was a personal attack on the tantwwi minister himself, there was a furor. The announcer who was at the mosque and the studio announcer, monitoring the prayer, were reprimanded and penalized for not stopping the transmission.
AI-Tantawi stood his ground and was unrepentant. The government wanted to punish him, but dared not for fear of provoking a popular uprising. When he moved to Saudi Arabia, he stood his ground giving his rulings on matters put to him.
Something that gave Al-Tantawi a higher standing among the ordinary Muslim people in Saudi Arabia were his broadcasts on radio and television. At first Saudi radio realized that they had in him a speaker of wide appeal, since his fame preceded him, for he was a regular speaker on Syrian radio.
He continued to give radio broadcasts for tsntawi very long time. When Saudi television started broadcasting, Al-Tantawi was among the first to have a regular program.
In fact, he had two programs, one known boiks Questions and Issues, and the other, Light and Guidance. The latter was a weekly program that ran for over 25 years. In Ramadan he added a daily ten-minute program. As a speaker on radio and television, he realized that his audience was mixed, so he made his talk simple, direct, candid, and most importantly, full of Islamic knowledge.
His appeal was wide indeed. His regular viewers included people from all strata of society. His post bag was always full. Viewers wrote to him for advice on all sorts of problems, seeking an enlightened religious view, which he was always ready to give.
In fact, the late King Faisal regularly watched his Friday program.

Once he noticed that as Al-Tantawi was seen to continue speaking, books was an interruption in the sound. When he inquired the reason, he was told that apparently the Sheikh had said something that someone felt should be cut off.
The King expressed his amazement, saying: This order continued to be observed for many years even after King Faisal had passed away.
He first stayed in Riyadh for a couple of years before moving to Makkah where he lived for nearly 30 years. He then tantxwi to Jeddah to stay nearer to his daughters. He was granted Saudi nationality. Personal tragedy was to hit him when his daughter, Banan, was assassinated in her flat in Aachen, Germany, in the early s. The German security authorities considered the crime a political assassination.
The Sheikh was deeply hurt and was in profound grief at her loss. Four years later, he had to refer to her in an article and he wrote that it was tantaiw first time he could write down her name or speak about her.
Like all her four sisters, she was highly educated. She inherited from her father clarity of expression and a clear literary talent. Ali Al-Tantawi wrote many books on a wide range of subjects. It has been re-translated recently. These memoirs were later published in eight volumes. The memoirs do not follow a set pattern or a clearly defined plan, but they contain a wealth of information about life in the early and mid 20th century in Syria and other Arab countries.
They include detailed biographical notes on a large number of personalities who played a part in shaping events and ail in Syria. Yet, the superior literary style of the memoirs suggests that they were subject to extensive revision, which was clearly not the case.
That tells us a great deal about his high literary standard, excelled only by his very high standard in Fiqh and Islamic knowledge. You are here Home Scholar of renown: Startup of the Week: Going eco-friendly in your own trendy style.
